Heliotropium arborescens

Common Heliotrope

Their large clusters of scented flowers and crinkled, purple-veined leaves make these old-fashioned subshrubs popular with florists. Best grown as summer annuals, they can be perennial in mild climates. Use in borders or pots, or prune side branches into a tree shape on a trellis. Water container plants freely when in full growth, less at other times. Fertilize during growing season. Prune tips in spring to promote bushy growth. Can be started from cuttings.
